Sundays. They’re some of the best days. Some people call Sundays the Lord’s Day.
Every day should center around the praise and worship of God. Every day we should wake up with grateful and humble hearts before our Maker, rejoicing that His mercies are new every morning. So, what’s so special about Sundays?
Sundays are special because it is a day that you can gather with other believers of God and worship Jesus TOGETHER. Gathering on Sunday morning is one particular expression of a life lived in continual worship of God. Scripture tells us to gather and to hear the reading of Scripture, to feast on the preaching and teaching of the Word. We can be singing hymns, praying together, and preparing our hearts to serve God in the week ahead. Sundays prepare us for a life lived in community and remind us of God’s amazing Gospel.
I have the distinct honor and pleasure of being married to a man gifted with musical abilities and leadership. I love how he leads our church family in songs of praise and worship to our King and Savior. He tries to pick songs that fit well with the Scripture we are going through. He also tries to pick songs that will stick with us throughout the week so we are encourging our hearts with melodies of truth and the Gospel. Today, I thought I’d share with you the music set he put together for The Fields this Sunday. So many people were encouraged by the theology of each song. It was a blessing for my heart as well.
Here’s the set and a link to the versions of each song on YouTube.
- Before the Throne
- All Creatures
- We are Here for You
- Behold our God
- Oh God
- Though You Slay Me
- Psalm 145
Please listen to each of the above songs and be blessed! Pray about the Lord’s Day – for the service, the music, the pastors, your own family, and yourself. Ask that the Lord be glorified and that there would be great expectation and anticipation for the gathering. Ask that each Sunday – and every day – would be all about Jesus. Amen.
